Snape and a bunch of seventh years (including the famous trio) are out collecting potions materials when what should show up but a tornado! And, if Dorothy ended up in the wizarding world when she took an unanticipated ride in a tornado, well, I bet you can all guess where Snape and company ended up.

There are no words to describe just how incredibly freaking awesome this fic is. For one thing, you have four different POVs and *every single one* is spot-on! For another, you have Wizards and Witches in Kansas and as great as that probably sounds, it's even *better* than you might expect (the rodeo! the student-teacher tug-of-war! the Rocky Mountain Oysters!!) And don't even get me started on Severus, Harry, Ron, and Hermione all shacking up together in a trailer with only two beds. Whee!

Okay, I'll stop squeeing now. In short, No Place Like is a cleverly written, brilliantly conceived, and flawlessly executed story that manages to integrate its original source material, its 'borrowed' source material, and tie them all together in one of the best and most original endings I've ever read for an HP fic. (Squee!)
